Unfortunately Sturridge is injured and will not play, neither will Deco. So I think the team Should be more like this.


Ferreira Ivanovic Terry Hutchinson


Lampard Zhirkov


Borini Kalou

Nice mix of youngsters and experienced stars.

Thanks for that TrueBlueDDP - you're more up-to-date than me! That's a shame about Sturridge. Hadn't read that, and wanted to see him get a chance. Is that why he wasn't included at the weekend? He played in the reserves last week and scored a hat-trick apparently.


We technically CAN see Katuka play, because the ban does not kick in till a 3 week grace period. Very much doubt we will, though.

Daniel - thanks for your post. Didn't know that, either! Not having a good day today...

You're right though, even if he were available we'd never play him. It would only resurface all of the issues and put too much pressure on the kid.
